Hey guys,
I've decided that it's time for me to part with my SG, as I don't play it much, i never bonded with it (8 years and played maybe a dozen times?), and I am definitely more of a fender guy in terms of the feel i like. so here it is!

When I bought this guitar, it had been played by a right handed player in a punk band, so it has some interesting wear. It’s got a lot of battle scars but I think it gives the guitar character.
You will see it used to have a bigsby, and it has non original Grover tuners on it.
It has never had the headstock snapped off, though it has a very minor shallow crack there. Never been an issue for tuning, but just want to make sure it’s fully disclosed. you can see that on the photo below.

it comes with an original, though heavily beat up Gibson case. From what I know, the case is from the 1970s, but the guitar is a 1990.
I am open to reasonable offers! Also I still have the right handed nut if you want to flip it again. :D

Price is $550 USD plus shipping costs.

Yeah actually the deal is crazy good. Someone snap it up! I don't play a lick of six string but it's a tasty looking axe.

hey guys! yeah, i figure with the fact that it's pretty beat up, and i didn't buy it for much more than i want to sell it, it's only fair. :)

Also IMPORTANT: I should note, that the crack in the headstock area has been fixed at some point before i bought this guitar. it's not an open crack. it has been filled. i've had a few people ask about this, so i thought i'd clarify 8-)

in an interesting turn of events, i've been contacted by the original owner and he wants to buy it back locally! he sold it off years ago, and spotted my ad and says it was the only gibson he ever enjoyed.

so this is SOLD PENDING FUNDS (on Thursday)
i'll leave this up until then in case it falls through

and she's SOLD. that went surprisingly quickly for a beat up lefty guitar :lol:
it was actually really cool to sell it back to the original owner. from what he told me he was going through some rough stuff with his dad's health and seeing his old guitar made his week. :)

thanks again guys!
